CNA will be distributed in China and in return China’s CCTV 9 net will be carried on cable in Singapore beginning June 1.

Agreement was signed by Shaun Seow, group managing director of MediaCorp, and Li Jian, chief exec of CITV, at a ceremony in Beijing’s Great Hall of the People.

MediaCorp group CEO Ernest Wong described the agreement as “only the first step. We will have to work hard to ensure our viewers in China find our programs useful and relevant.”

CNA reaches 16 million homes and hotels in 18 territories across Asia.
